Deal done. Another reason for media to moan why we loan players out
Good one, clears the way for Saliba to return next season hopefully. Leaves us a bit short at CB, but they must be viewing Tomiyasu and Chambers as cover which looks decent anyway.

Surely Tomiyasu is cover for LCB now. But in that case we have Cedric and Chambers for RB. At least we have numbers there until the summer.

Wait have I missed something? Tavares is LB cover right? I think the big risk with using Tomi at CB is the drop off in quality on the right side... Chambers is pretty good though in both positions so I'm ok with Mari leaving.

I meant LCB.

Anyway, glad this is done. Mari was a much cheaper punt than what I think Cedric probably was, given the portuguese's signing on fee and wages.

This opens up some space for my boy Salib---Hahahahahahahaha, we're totally signing another cb in the summer, who am I kidding.

We aren't light on cover. Mari provided a left-footed option at LCB which Arteta has mentioned is important so we are missing that perhaps but not numbers.

RB - Tomiyasu, Cedric
LB - Tierney, Tavares, Kolasinac
CB - White, Gabriel, Holding, Chambers

Hoping to see us move on Kolasinac by the end of this window too. Mari should be sold in the summer for a profit on what we bought him for so that could work out as decent business for a player always intended to be a back-up.

Yeah we will still have 8 defenders if Kolasinac goes too which is plenty.

We only have 18 league games and a maximum of two cup matches left to play in a shade over 5 months.

Think he'll do pretty well in Italy.

Bit of a sub par spell here though. A few decent games other than that looked a bit ropey and off the pace.

Just put it down as a punt signing. Didn't turn out awful, didn't turn out good either.

I am not against selling him if Saliba returns to Arsenal and we do not spend 20 million to get a replacement for Chambers and Mari ...

Huge loss this, especially when combined with the Sead transfer too.

Losing some real Arsenal men, hope the team doesn't get too disheartened.

We got your favourite player, who is worth at least ten men with his personality.

I know, but Elneny is still away from the club at the minute.

Big leadership void right now :(
